It’s a big day in sports betting with both the U.S. Open and 2018 World Cup getting underway. Public money is flooding the market for a normally slow period on the sports calendar with oodles of recreational bettors looking for action to sweat at work.
Not only are public bettors betting the big events, but they’re also throwing money on today’s baseball slate, according to our number of bets data. And any time misguided money from inexperienced bettors hits the market, wiseguys will gladly take advantage by hammering the other side, and that’s exactly what’s happening in today’s Cleveland Indians-Chicago White Sox (2:10 p.m. ET) game.
